Taipei, Taiwan – Independent app developer, Cory Renzella is pleased to announce the release of “2012 Map: The Presidential Election App”. Now available in the “News” category of the App Store, “2012 Map” lets you create, save, and share 2012 presidential election scenarios in a quick and easy way. This iOS app is a must-have for anyone interested in American politics and presidential elections.
It includes a “Live” map that is updated every day with the newest polls; “Historical” maps that detail every election, from 1789 through 2008; and a “New” blank map that you can customize from scratch.
In presidential elections, it’s the electoral vote that matters most. That vote is determined by the states each candidate wins, and whether you’re interested in historical elections or the 2012 election, “2012 Map: The Presidential Election App” covers it all.
According to Cory Renzella, the app’s creator, “This app focuses on what really matters in the election, and it’s got something for everyone. History buffs can read about the controversial election of 1876, when Rutherford Hayes beat Samuel Tilden by a single electoral vote; people who are focused on the current race can look at polling details in every state and see that on August 9, Romney was holding a slight 47.5% to 46.5% lead over Obama in North Carolina; and people who simply want to create their own scenarios can start from a blank map, experimenting to see what the map would look like if a Republican swept the south, a Democrat took the coasts, and a third-party candidate had a strong showing out West.”
2012 Map has already risen to as high as number three in the “Paid Apps” chart in the “News” category. It is currently being featured in the “News” category, and on August 12, mobile app site Appolicious.com named it as one of its “iOS Apps of the Week”.
